Home to the popular Beer Can House (yes, the one that is made of up beer cans, bottles, and all things beer), Rice Military set in the 77007 ZIP code area is a neighborhood in the Loop in Houston. The name originates from nearby Camp Logan, a World War I-era U.S. Army training camp, which was replaced by Memorial Park after the war. The “Rice” in the name comes from the family that used to own the area. One of the most popular of the Rices, William M. Rice, left behind a fortune to found Rice University. Bankers Trust Co. paid $54,425 ($734,400 in current money) to the Rice family and another party for the entire area.
Rice Military Community
The community is in proximity to Memorial Park and River Oaks. David Walter, a Rice resident quoted in the Houston Chronicle, said that one could travel to Downtown from this city in five minutes. The boundaries of the neighborhood are Washington Avenue on the north, Memorial Drive on the south, Shepherd Drive on the east, and Westcott Street on the west.
As of 2008 the area had 391 houses. The owner of a real estate firm in the area said that many area realtors also associate houses in neighboring subdivisions and label them as being in “Rice Military.” The wider part of this area has around 1,300 houses. With tree-lined streets, this area can be aptly described a nice neighborhood to live in, once rural but then with the relocation of artists and professionals turned urban. Attractions of the neighborhood include Nellie Keyes Park and Beer Can House along with big Houston attractions being only minutes away. The people get to live in a small, calm community while having downtown Houston, the Galleria, Memorial Park, endless restaurants, and all that amazingly close.
